Announcing the Web Oversight Committee

Announcing the Web Oversight Committee 1200 628 Jill Pioter
Dear Vincentian Friends,
In an effort to further improve the usability and effectiveness of the National Council of the U.S., Society of St. Vincent de Paul members’ website, and based on the recommendation of the Leadership Task Force, I have established the Web Oversight Committee (WOC).
This three-member committee is chartered to oversee the website content publication process for our organization, for both internal and external audiences. This focus helps us build on the momentum of the website redesign and is intended to be an efficient/effective construct to improve our web presence.
The initial makeup of this committee is Michael Pazzaglini (Chair), Kathy Iberle (Secretary), and Tim Williams. The Web Oversight Committee charter includes the following responsibilities:
  • Define and manage the web content publication process
  • Provide mechanism for new web content requests
  • Review existing web content for redundancy, freshness, and sunsetting opportunities
  • Develop audience definitions to improve web content effectiveness
  • Create standards for quality web content creation and maintenance
  • Integrate with National Council staff as part of the web content publication process
  • Mitigate conflicts with web content ownership
  • Improve web content consumption with website design modifications recommendations
These committee responsibilities will help speed up the dissemination of information when and where it is needed. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact this committee using the WOC@svdpusa.org email address.
Please join me in thanking this group for stepping up to this new responsibility and praying for their success to help the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Serviens in spe,
Ralph Middlecamp
SVdP National President

1099 Requirements for Services and for Rent Paid Directly to Landlords

1099 Requirements for Services and for Rent Paid Directly to Landlords 1200 628 Jill Pioter

After extensive research and consulting with both the National Council auditor and attorney, National Council believes that once the total payments made by a Council or Conference for services or for rent payments to a landlord equal or exceed $600 in a calendar year, a Form 1099 must be mailed to the recipient and filed with the IRS.

There are only a few exceptions to this requirement:

  • Payments made to corporations
  • Payments made to real estate agents or property managers acting on behalf of a landlord
  • Payments made to tax-exempt organizations (including governments)
  • Payments made via a third-party payment network (credit card, debit card or Pay Pal type service, but this does not include online bill payments)

All other payments for services or for rent payments to a landlord totaling $600 or more in a calendar year will trigger the Form 1099 filing requirement.

Keep in mind that Forms 1099 are filed together for entities sharing an EIN, and if Conferences share an EIN with their Council, the Council will be required to combine all payments made to a service provider or landlord during a calendar year. It is recommended that records be kept of all payments to service providers and landlords, and Forms W-9 be requested and retained before making any service or rent payment, even if the payment is below the $600 limit.

This is only a very brief summary of the rules. Councils and Conferences should review the complete IRS Form 1099 instructions and consult with their tax professionals for additional guidance. Additional materials and example documents are available here.

While some Councils and Conferences may receive differing opinions from their advisors, we recommend that they make sure the source is a knowledgeable professional and that the guidance is well documented and received in writing.
